(l) Pavement marking, sign location, and street lighting. This plan shall be labeled, “Pavement Marking, Traffic Control, and Street Lighting” and shall be prepared at a scale of no less than one inch equals 100 feet and shall contain pavement markings, sign locations, and streetlight locations, and any detail and standards related to this information.
(m) Landscape and recreational improvement plan. When required, a landscape architect or landscape designer with the necessary knowledge of plants and design skills shall provide a landscape plan and recreational improvement plan that performs the following functions: treats all applicable areas of the site required by § 151.167 of this chapter with suitable landscape material; and locates recreational improvements to promote access and use by residents (see § 151.221). The plan shall be labeled “Landscape and Recreational Improvement Plan” and shall include the following information:
1. Platted improvements. The location of proposed lots, road rights-of-way and easements, including lot numbers and street names;
2. Engineered improvements. The location of proposed structures, roads, sidewalks within the road right-of-way, and other impervious surfaces;
3. Phase limits. If the subdivision will be platted in phases, the limits of each phase;
4. Landscaping. The location, size, and type of proposed landscaping as required by § 151.167 of this chapter, if any, together with the location, number, species, and size of required landscape plant material; the type and size of structures, if any; and a landscape plant schedule;
5. Recreational improvements. The location and design of proposed recreational improvements, if any, as required by this chapter;
6. Significant trees and woodlands. The location of significant trees and woodlands as defined by § 151.071(I) of this chapter and their protection measures; and
7. Reforestation area. Reforestation area, if required, together with the location, number, species, and size of required landscape plant material.
(5) Cost estimate and schedule.
(a) Cost estimate. An estimate of probable expenditures necessary to construct the proposed subdivision in full compliance with all applicable standards shall be signed and sealed by the engineer of record. Unless otherwise authorized by the Multi-Disciplinary Team, the cost estimate shall be divided into: (1.) Subdivision Assurance Valuation, representing 120% of the total cost of all subdivision improvements, and (2.) the Restoration Valuation, representing 30% of the Subdivision Assurance Valuation estimate; at a minimum, when applicable, the following information shall be included in the estimate.
1. Subdivision assurance valuation.
a. Mass grading and earthwork (i.e., clearing, grubbing, mass grading, fine grading);
b. Drainage improvements (i.e., detention construction, storm sewer, outlet control structures, end sections, and the like);
c. Roadway improvements (i.e., base, binder, surface improvements, curb and gutter, sidewalks, signage, traffic control, and the like);
d. Sanitary sewer and water main improvements;
e. Landscape improvements;
f. Retaining walls;
g. Recreational improve-ments;
h. Soil erosion sediment control and natural resource protection measures and practices; and
i. Engineering and surveying consulting services (minimum 10% of the total improvement costs).
2. Restoration valuation. The valuation of the restoration amount for any subdivision shall represent 30% of the total costs for the subdivision improvements.
(b) Construction schedule. A construction schedule shall be provided with the final engineering plans in the form of a time scale network. The time scale network shall identify each critical task involved in the construction of the subdivision and the beginning and completion of each task in relation to each other task. Exact dates need not be identified during the review of final engineering improvement plans; specific dates for the beginning and completion of each task will be identified at the time of the preconstruction conference.
